Yea, I had a bit of a moan about the number of 404 pages cropping up in another thread :).

It does feel a little like the action has slowed down – at least from a purchasers point of view. I check back frequently for new items, specifically in the php section recently. The php section was getting multiple new items every day for a while, but now it feels like a couple per week at best.

Would love to see more submissions, but like you said – maybe sales are not currently high enough to validate the effort on the authors part?

Like you, I think that the revamped design will lead to a large influx of new traffic for a while (I’m sure it’ll get a ton of promotion), so we might see a really good pickup over the next couple months.

Is anyone else thoroughly bored of the number of 404 pages popping up?

One was uploaded, sold really well – the next thing you know, 50% of the files uploaded in the HTML templates category are 404 pages.

I keep checking back for more awesome templates to buy.. and there’s 3 new 404 pages.

Je’us :)

Ah excellent! Yes I’m looking for something like this too :)

Hi,

Does anyone know of a really good quiz/test script you can embed into your site? I’ve seen a few online, but they look pretty basic/poor.

If not, it might be a good seller on TF?

Wow, it never even occurred to me to vary slightly on black – I’m going to try #111/#222 !

Hi Morad,

In my personal opinion …

The fonts and icons are inappropriate for the design – and they look a little amateurish. While you’re obviously going for a specific look, the lack of colour makes the site fairly dull/boring to look at. Once you have a screenshot on the page, as per the portfolio page, it suddenly looks completely out of place with the generic site colours.

The theme itself seems more appropriate for a call of duty website, rather than design agency/portfolio template?

As for improving it, I’m afraid I’m really not sure what you could do with it – I’m not certain this can be salvaged – maybe you can take the best elements from it and move forwards with it in another direction?

Sorry to be harsh, this is – again – just my personal opinion.

Thanks,

Dan

Agree with you Jonathan – campaign monitor testing process takes ages for some reason; you end up waiting a couple days before you can be 100% confident your email is OK. Who can hang around that long?

I’d be interested in submitting email templates, but would definitely like more of an indication as to how much TF plan on selling them for.

Cheers,

Dan

Hi dtbaker,

I’ve also been looking for something like this, to maintain certain elements my website – something simple for specific areas (e.g. a support/knowledgebase area and menus).

Could I possibly steal a copy to have a look at too?

If it was ever officially released on here (and I was using it), I would happily buy immediately.

Cheers,

Dan

The first thing I noticed when trying to determine what’s wrong with it, is that I really can’t read the gray text (because of the black background), so it may be worth investigating accessibility considerations?

You might also want to segregate the 3 columns (e.g. dividing lines, differing background colours), so that there is a clear hierarchy – as you eye is naturally distracted at present. Or perhaps the 1st column is deserving of a little more space to encourage the reader towards it?

Good luck!

Dan
